Keeping Sane and Banana Pudding
Hello my name is Robyn and I am the little sister in this trio. I first want to welcome everyone to our new blog! We are so excited about this new adventure! I will be posting every Tuesday and I can’t wait!!
I am always asked how I manage to stay so organized and on top of things. I sometimes laugh at this question because if you saw some of the drawers in my bathroom you would never ask me that question. However, I tend to be very type A and I love and thrive on routines and schedules. I follow a tight schedule every day as a teacher and I love it! When I get home from a long day at work, I want to be able to spend as much time with my family as possible. I mainly do the same routine everyday and it gets me ready for the next day in a short amount of time.
As soon as I walk in the house, I put all the bags (diaper, lunch, and purse) down and quickly go through the mail. All the junk goes in the recycling, bills in a drawer, and magazines in a basket.
I then put all dirty sippy cups and my lunch containers in the dishwasher. I then check to see if I need to replenish anything in the diaper bag (diapers, wipes etc.). I make cups for the next day and morning.
All the bags and mail go in the pantry on a shelf and out of the way.
Bags and lunches are ready for the next day! I also pick out mine and Andrews clothes for the next day. Mornings are so much smoother!
Question: How do you get out the door quickly in the morning?
We all know that southern people love some banana pudding! My mother-in-law makes the BEST! I have personally never made this, I am NOT a cooker, but I have done plenty of tasting!
1 (14 oz) can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 1/2 cups of Cold water
1 (4serving size pkg.) of instant vanilla flavor pudding mix
2 cups (1 pint) Whipping Cream, whipped
36 vanilla wafers
3 med. bananas, sliced and dipped in lemon juice concentrate
In a large bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk and water. Add pudding mix; beat well. Chill 5 mins. Fold in whipped cream. Spoon 1 cup pudding mixture into 2-1/2 quart glass serving bowl. Top with one third of the wafers, bananas, and pudding. Repeat layering twice, ending with pudding. Cover and chill.
